Sugar Nellie Blog Hop!!! Come join in the Fun!!

Afternoon friends! What a gorgeous day it is here too:) If you've come from Marlene's blog you're on the right track, if not start at the beginning at the Sugar Nellie blog so you don't miss anyone out, and don't miss any chances to win some sugary sweet candy:)

The Sugar Nellie hop theme today is dusting off our old favourites Sugar Nellies, and I've used this fab Mary Hall stamp called 'Boys Up A Tree' which you can buy here if you don't win one from my draw:)

Since we've moved house I've been wanting to make a door hanger for Leo's room and thought this would be the perfect opportunity:) I used a wooden hanger I've had in my 'ready for altering draw' for ages! I covered it in strong adhesive then applied the Basic Grey Recess paper and filed down the edges. I've added some raffia and some chipboard buttons by Cosmo Cricket. No idea where the ribbon came from, it's been in my ribbon box for at least a year!

Here's an image close up:~

I've coloured the gorgeous Mary Hall image with copics and used distress ink in frayed burlap around the edges, then stitched around it with my sewing machine. Want to win this stamp? Karen has generously given all the dt candy in the form of the stamp they used on their hop creations today. All you have to do is leave a comment on my post. I will pick a winner from the comments that I like most:) You have until midnight GMT this Sunday to get your comments in and complete the hop! Winners will be revealed on Monday!

Your next stop on the hop is Sarah.

Thanks for stopping by today and for all your lovely comments! Good luck with the draws and Have fun! xxx
